Dwayne Johnson, a celebrated movie star is expected to jet in to Rwanda anytime to meet face to face with the gorilla he recently adopted.
“Cool moment today as I got to introduce my adopted son, IYAMBERE (Ee-Yom-Beh-Reh) to @theellenshow and the world,” he said.
He also said, “The research for my RAMPAGE role wound up being so much than I ever anticipate and I’m honored to have this incredible animal adopted in my name by our friends at the@savinggorillas. Can’t wait to meet you one day big guy and keep being a stud .”
Rampage will be featuring Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson as the head of an anti-poaching unit in Rwanda.
His best friend is a rare albino gorilla named George, and things get incredibly volatile when a genetically editing toxin is introduced to the creature, allowing him to grow in height and aggression simultaneously.
In this movie George was saved from poachers by Johnson’s character Davis Okoye who is a primatologist. The two of them form a bond because Okoye gets better with animals than people.
The adventure begins when George is mutated into a monster, and two of them together try to save the world from other mutated beasts. A crocodile and flying wolf!
For those in the US can see the movie in theaters from April 11th. The interesting part is that Johnson, as diligent as he is regarding his projects, spent some time with real gorillas in Atlanta Zoo.
In the process, this guy became an acquaintance with their silver-back gorilla named Taz. Dwayne Johnson got so attached to this animal that he adopted his son.
